Rock climbing is not very different from mountaineering except that instead of snow there are rocks involved in this adventure sport. Rock climbing's most basic features include climbing a rock face, using only hands, feet and a safety rope. If you are good at climbing, then you can definitely try out this sport. But, some rock traverses in certain areas extend over great lengths and merit championship status. Certain climbs can often prove gruelling and tough, but the magic of the surrounding mountains landscapes always keep the spirits high of a climber.
